3. Jordan Addison - WR

After the interception to start the game, it would not have been surprising if Jordan Addison took a back seat to K.J. Osborn and T.J. Hockenson so Kirk Cousins could lean on his veterans. Instead, Addison exploded for his breakout game, finishing with seven catches for 123 yards and two touchdowns.

Addison made one of the best plays of the season to close out the first half as he ripped an interception out of the hands of Charvarius Ward, much like Ward did earlier and took it to the house. Had Addison not ripped it away, it would have been a crushing interception. At best, it appeared that Addison would make an absurd catch and get tackled in bounds to end the half.

Instead, the rookie put himself in the headlines with a game-altering play that set the Vikings up for the win. In Justin Jefferson's absence, Addison has stepped up as the star that he was expected to become.

The Vikings have an incredible duo on the outside, and that should set them up for a long time. Regardless of who is under center, Minnesota should have no problems pushing the ball down the field for a long, long time.
